Nairobi - A policewoman collapsed and died during rehearsals for the upcoming Madaraka Day celebrations.
The policewoman, Martha Maskonte collapsed and died Wednesday during preparations for the June 1 celebrations at the Uhuru Park.
The cause of her death is yet to be known but officers who spoke to News24 said that she had complained of feeling unwell earlier on the fateful day.
" She had said she was unwell but ended up coming for the rehearsal after she was forced to," the officer who asked not to be named said.
Those claims though, are still under investigation, according to Nairobi area deputy police boss Joseph Limo.
" We are still yet to know the cause of death but we will find out in due course," he said when quizzed over the matter by News24 on phone.
Maskonte was based at the Parklands Police Station.
